nurse sets off metal detectors everywhere she goes

If it is possible to have too much of a good thing, this might be it.

Elaine Davidson holds the record for the most body piercings. At last official count, she has 6,005 piercings. Of those, a hundreds are on her face, and 1,500 are "internal."

Elaine, who is a nurse living in Edinburgh, was first recognized by the Guinness World Records 9 years ago, when she had a mere 462 piercings. In the years since, she has continued to outdistance the record-wannabes by continuing her piercing.

Interestingly, Elaine doesn't like being pierced. She does it so that she can "be herself" and, of course, maintain her world record.

Elaine is quoted by Ananova: "I don't enjoy getting pierced, but to break the record you have to get to a high level. I wanted to break the record.

"My family don't even like tattoos or piercings. But I am happy. I decided to change myself and be me."

I wonder how much her face weighs.
